Healthcare has always been an industry where data protection is paramount. Patient data (and access to that data) is tightly controlled, but just as important is the protection of employee data. At BIDMC, the highest value is placed on the safety of employees’ sensitive data, while at the same time allowing employees to do what they do best – take care of patients.
Businesses are rapidly evolving their ERP estate to keep pace with changing user and customer demands. A move to S/4HANA, remote user access, and mobile apps have all become commonplace in today’s SAP conversation. The SAP security conversation hasn’t evolved at the same pace.
A new reality is ERP systems have a greater attack surface, comprised of remote users accessing PeopleSoft with their own devices. In addition, employees being out of the watchful eye of an office or onsite management can present risks.
In order to stay ahead of potential security, compliance, and performance risks – PeopleSoft professionals are often seeking ways to gain actionable insights from their own system data. Unfortunately, PeopleSoft logs were designed for troubleshooting errors vs. understanding data access, usage, and page performance. Needless to say, knowledge is power and true knowledge depends on what data is available to you.
With a rapid transition to remote access, organizations are struggling to maintain oversight into critical financial operations. For many, enabling remote access to PeopleSoft FSCM is a new requirement – even for those who had previously allowed remote access to HCM Self-Service. Because visibility is a cornerstone of oversight, organizations must enhance how they monitor user activity in order to develop rapid response and risk mitigation strategies.
Whether you are in Campus, HCM, or Financials, the current PeopleSoft user experience is a combination of Classic, Classic Plus, and Fluid.
